. >> reporter: with the polls tightening, the president needs to fire up his base while mitt romney needs to convert 2008 obama voters. last night in kentucky, they got a lot of help from their running mates. rob, paula. back to you. >> thank you, karen. as karen alluded to -- polls are tight. dead heat in virginia. obama up one in florida. doing well in ohio up by six. in colorado, romney is ahead by a point now. virginia is still tight. obama is up by five there. wisconsin up by three. so it really is -- the country watches, but really about a cluster, maybe six, eight states will make or break this race. romney made up a lot of ground since last week's debate for sure. >> i don't know if this one will move the needle. both appealed to their base really. joe biden didn't make any fatal flaws. and neither did paul ryan in this one. but, you know let everybody spin it how they want. i looked at six different polls. three gave it to biden. three gave it to paul ryan. >> it's a draw essentially. >> pretty much is a draw. >> again, i know the media's inclination, folk's inclinatio

. and republican expectations for ryan to clobber biden are through the roof. in that pew poll, 78% of republicans believe ryan will do better in the debate, compared to 62% of democrats who say the same about joe biden. ryan has to defend both his record and mitt romney's, and in some cases, those two tasks midi verge. the bottom line for ryan, he has to prove he's ready to be president. that is tonight's most important test, and one that i think a lot of people miss when it comes to what a vp debate means. ryan's readiness, of course, on foreign policy, that's going to come up as well. tonight's 90-minute debate is divided between domestic and foreign policy, and moderator martha raddatz says she will alternate between the two in nine ten-minute segments. each segment will have a response followed by untimed discussion. libya will indeed come up tonight. speaking of libya, that was the subject of a heated congressional hearing yesterday that was one part spectacle and one part substance. the bottom line, no part of the hearing was good for the white house. two former security officers from the l

national polls, but looking at the poll state by state, because, the numbers i look at every morning in addition to senate numbers they have presidential numbers, there is no question that governor romney helped himself immensely after last week, we would like for it to last. neil: right, the numbers that went from double digit in ohio to mid single digit, many counterparts say, they think that is under state the support that mitt romney has. >> closer than that in ohio. neil: what do you engine. >think?>> a dead even race. neil: really. >> yes. neil: and this early voting that president has been focussing on, take advantage of an also ary lead. >> i read in ohio a lot of early voters are democratic, but other states they are majority is republican. in the end you have a total of all voters, i would not read too much into the early vote. there are reports that president has gotten off to a good start in early voting in ohio. neil: quickly, we'll be live in washington this weekend, we hope to call you if you are available. covering the other discussion that is getting little discussio
